Hal Adams named CEO at MAPCO
The operator of nearly 350 convenience stores in the Southeast has a new CEO.
MAPCO has named C-store veteran Charles (Hal) Adams as CEO. The announcement was made by Frederic Chaveyriat, who served as interim CEO during the search and remains Executive Vice President of MAPCO’s Board of Directors.
Adams joins MAPCO with nearly 30 years of extensive experience in convenience store operations, marketing, merchandising, and strategy. He began his career as a night shift associate working his way up to his most recent position as President of Retail Operations at CST Brands, a Fortune 200 international C-store chain with over 2,000 stores and 13,000 people.
“We have been in a period of transition and growth focusing on establishing a new ‘people first’ culture that will enable MAPCO to be an industry innovator and a brand our guests can trust,” said Chaveyriat. “With Hal, we get not only an exceptional professional with a proven industry track record, but also a servant-leader with a committed vision who knows how to inspire team members and deliver a best-in-class customer experience.”
Adams, who will report to Chaveyriat, begins his tenure at MAPCO on Feb. 5.
“This is an incredibly exciting time for MAPCO’s growth, and I look forward to joining the team,” said Hal Adams, CEO of MAPCO. “MAPCO is investing in its people and its stores, and I am a passionate believer that a culture of empowerment will drive strong business results.”
MAPCO has 348 corporate-owned convenience stores operating primarily in Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia with additional presence in Arkansas, Virginia, Kentucky, and Mississippi.
